During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
Front Desk Administrative volunteers interact directly with clients, either in person or over the phone, providing resource information and referrals.
Primary duties include: greeting clients, answering phones, transferring calls, scheduling appointments, data entry, keeping lobby and office area neat, distributing food pantry items and more.
Each volunteer who provides Front Desk support at the Women’s Center will receive training in interpersonal and communication skills, office management techniques, dealing with crisis calls, and how to research services not provided by the Women’s Center. Phone and computer skills are necessary.
A minimum commitment of 4 hours per week is desired. The office is open Monday to Friday from 9 am-4 pm.

To assist in creating safe, healthy, self-sufficient lives by providing support, education, counseling, information and services to survivors of domestic, dating and sexual violence and to those suffering the ill effects of poverty, homelessness and mental health challenges.
Many women alone and those who are in abusive relationships have a tough time trying to survive in today's fast-paced world. Their circumstances cross all economic, age, and cultural spheres. They may be disadvantaged by low self-esteem. They may have educational deficiencies and low income capacity. In all cases, these women struggle as they try to take responsibility for themselves and any children they may have.
The Women's Center strives to address the needs of women by giving them a step up towards safe, healthy, self-sufficient lives.
Every day, women come to us without the ability to provide for themselves and their families. These women often are abused and battered, and looking for advocacy, guidance, and support. Thanks to our volunteers and loyal supporters who give so much of their time and resources, and the benefits of grant awards, the Women's Center is able to provide counseling services, financial assistance, career guidance, job training, transitional housing, and victim advocacy. The Center is proud to be able to help annually over 10,000 women and their children who seek out our assistance.
Helping women to help themselves means making it possible for Women's Center clients to not only support themselves, but to become active and proud participants in the community. By supporting the Women's Center through your time, talent, and treasure, you give the gift of hope and you change lives for the better...forever.
We'll work with your schedule.
